    My husband is into CSPAN today watching the healthcare debate. I'm so SICK of hearing Republicans say "The Democrats......." AND hearing the Democrats say "The Republicans....." Can't any of these people think for themselves? There used to be a time when you only knew a person's official party when they were running for re-election, not by their knee-jerk parroting of the 'party line'. These people need to take personal responsibility and vote their conscious NOT their party. GAAAAAAAA

    Unfortunately, when there is money involved (as there is in politics), people will vote against their conscience and go along party lines, even if they disagree. I agree it's a shame that our two party system has turned into such a mess. It would be nice if we could do away with parties altogether and vote for individuals instead.

    Ironically enough, we don't have a two party system people are just content with two parties, The politics are always going to be the same, greed and corruption, good politicians don't last long, and everyone has a price tag, consider Rep Stupak, he just changed his vote cause Obama will issue an executive order against federal funding of abortions. To bad that won't last long for him.

    Let's keep the politics out of this thread. This is a b*+@h about people thinking for themselves not what they are or aren't thinking.

    Here are my pics

    The Game - President.

    Picasso- Vice President (seems pretty level headed, and might be able to prevent him from blowing stuff up)

    Yote- Secretay of Defense (Just in case Picasso can't talk TheGame out of blowing stuff up) We might as well make sure we kill it.

    Biff- Speaker of the House (Obvious)

    and Cathic as Sean Hannity (I couldn't resist):D

    ahahaha you guys are funny.

    I would like to appoint reefreak to handle our space program.

    I would like to appoint biff to handle all environmental issues.

    Smitty would run the secret service. His main job is to protect me and yote.

    there are many more i will appoint to critical positions...our next goal after eliminating the criminal politicians is to destroy the federal reserve. We will go back to the gold standard. No more income tax and robots will replace human jobs so our people can lead more enriched lives, not be out of a job with no money. Robots will only be used to help us live better. Minimum 2 months vacations will be required. We want our people to be have enough time to recover from stress so that they actually enjoy what they do. In our new system, everyone will contribute because they want to!

    Here here for the new United States:Cheers:
    We will still use obama. he will be in charge of Toyota.
